Ingredients

1 medium bell pepper

1 large carrot

1/4 small head purple cabbage

1 cup sprouts

1 squash

10 large rice paper wrappers

11/2 tablespoons of rice vinegar

Rainbow Veggie Spring Rolls

Instructions
1. Prepare the vegetables. Remove the top and seeds from the bell pepper and slice lengthwise. Peel the carrot and cut into thin slices. Slice the purple cabbage into thin shredded pieces. Slice the squash into thin slices. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and slice it into very thin slices.
2. Fill a dish with very warm water. Submerge one of the rice paper wrappers into the water for 15 to 25 seconds. Lay the semi-softened wrapper on a cutting board. Add a few slices of bell pepper, carrot, cabbage and squash. Place the sprouts on top of the veggies and lay a few slices of avocado underneath the veggies. Sprinkle a spoonful of rice vinegar over the veggies. Fold the sides of the wrapper over the filling and roll it up. Repeat with filling and rolling the remaining spring rolls.
3. Serve right away with one of the below dipping sauces.

    1. Great question, Julie. Unfortunately, it is not recommended to wrap these too far in advance. Our dietitian Grace Derocha shared that rice paper will get too gummy if it sits too long with the moisture of the vegetables. Thank you.
